Vermont Yankee to lay off 30 workers

Posted: Updated:

The owner of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant says about 30 jobs will be cut by the end of the year.

Entergy had warned that cuts were on the way at its facilities around the country as part of a reorganization.

The layoffs at Vermont Yankee are among about 800 throughout the company. The specific jobs being cut at Yankee have not yet been determined, but company officials say they will make sure the reductions don't pose any hazards to the plant's operation.

Entergy has been fighting a legal and permitting battle with the state of Vermont to keep the Vernon plant open. That's despite analysis on Wall Street that the plant's profitability has declined and it could be ripe for closure.
